IMGC becomes first distribution house of the year to cross 50cr mark at domestic boxoffice.. With first half of 2016 coming to an end, total of all films released this year has reached close to 150cr mark.. This year has not seen much potential grossers so far apart from Ho Mann Jahaan which collected over 16.25cr approx. First half has been very low and things must pick up immensely in 2nd half if industry has to end year at good point.
IMGC releases have been doing decent business whereas ARY has give only one film so far.. Eveready is seeing dullest year with Bachaana saving grace for them.. Geo only has two films with it and both did respectable business.. Footprint didn’t have many films with it and those it had were small English films which didn’t matter. HKC has seen most release but result has been way below mark. HKC did have few big potential releases but result was not up to the mark. Summit Entertainment has seen only one release Ki and Ka which was decent grosser..
